The remainder of the NAIA DII Men’s Basketball National Championships at the Sanford Pentagon will be limited to teams, essential staff members and immediate family of the student-athletes.
This decision is made in conjunction with the state of South Dakota and the city of Sioux Falls.
“Our first priority is the health and safety of the student-athletes, teams and fans at the Sanford Sports Complex, and we can all play a role in containing the COVID-19 virus,” said Bill Gassen, chief administrative officer at Sanford Health. “We know this is disappointing for the fans of all the teams, but our role as a health care leader is to protect the community.”
The tournament began Wednesday morning and runs through Tuesday, March 17.
